The Kalterersee Classico Superiore was born in the vineyards of Erste + Neue, a very interesting and excellent reality in the South Tyrolean wine scene. This wine, made exclusively from Schiava grapes, first ferments traditionally in steel, to then complete the fermentation and mature in large oak barrels.

"Erste+Neue, a significant contributor to the history of wine growing in Alto Adige for over a century, was established in 1986 following the merger of the Erste Kellerei (founded in 1900) and the Neue Kellerei (founded in 1925). A further forward-looking step was taken in 2016 when it was affiliated with Cantina Kaltern and the decision was taken to retain the brand in view of its prominence and tradition in the world of wine.

Wine in Alto Adige has a thousand years of history, and we are committed to maintaining and passing on this tradition and wine-growing culture. Our ambitions have always been rooted in a strong pioneering spirit, which also finds expression in the modern design of our labels.

We take the grapes that are carefully harvested by hand in our vineyards and process them with a passion for making perfect top-quality wines. With the experience of generations and their willingness to experiment, Erste+Neue today produces ten typical Alto Adige varieties. Our wine maker’s ambition is to make every wine both an original and a discovery. The typicity of each variety is emphasized and full expression given to the characteristics of the area of origin. The result is harmonious wines combining an impressive aromatic intensity with great elegance. Our two quality lines comprise distinctive white wines, red wines with an unmistakable varietal character and a sweet dessert wine." Erste+Neue
